Summit Park Hospital & Nursing Care Center announces accreditation survey will be conducted

Pomona, NY - The Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations will conduct an accreditation survey of Summit Park Long Term Acute Care Hospital & Nursing Care Center and the Department of Mental Health on June 3 – 5, 2008. The purpose of the survey will be to evaluate the organization’s compliance with nationally established Joint Commission standards. The survey results will be used to determine whether, and the conditions under which, accreditation should be awarded to the organization. Joint Commission standards deal with organization quality, safety of care issues, and the safety of the environment in which care is provided. Anyone believing that he or she has pertinent and valid information about such matters should notify the Joint Commission at the address below.
